Takes mine about 30 seconds to pump through the supplied hose; I can see it rise through the clear pipe... could just be the hozelock connector?

Yes, get it swapped...

Well I got my replacement yesterday.
Well chuffed with it.
It can't compare to a conventional pressure washer but managed to blast the green algae off my paths (when they were already wet after the rain).
Also had enough puff to jet off the prewash I applied to our Mini, followed by rinsing the car and wheels after a shampoo.
Surprisingly adding the extension Lance makes it more powerful!

This kinda shows how much power you get and how narrow the fan output is.

Won't blast out 10yr old moss off the drive but coped with the algae that has krept into my drive since I scrubbed it last year.

Hopefully B&Q will sell them at some point so that I have an excuse to get one.

Ha.... interesting with the hack videos, suddenly my interest in this is peaking.
Getting more pressure out of it and using soda bottle for water source is pretty darn good.

Worx Hydroshot cordless pressure washer sale

I think the pressure thing may be wrong.

Regardless of whether I use the short or long lance, pressure is the same. I have a H/L switch on top which achieves the same high low pressure as in the video.

Might be a US model thing?

Anyone else verify this behaviour?

If you look up this guy on youtube he has a few short vids about it detailing cars. His vids are good straight to the point and not full off the normal **** like hit that subscribe button and send me free stuff.

I got mine in case we had an hose pipe ban, use it all the time now as it is a lot quicker to use.
